Donald Trump Swats Paul Ryan for Challenging Idea to End Birthright Citizenship

President Donald Trump criticized House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday after the Speaker of the House challenged his idea of ending birthright citizenship.

“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Ryan criticized Trump’s proposal of ending birthright citizenship with an executive order during an interview on a Kentucky radio station on Tuesday.

“You cannot end birthright citizenship with an Executive Order,” Ryan said. “We didn’t like it when Obama tried changing immigration laws via executive action, and obviously as conservatives, we believe in the Constitution.”

Ryan has already announced his retirement after the Congressional mid-term elections but has campaigned for Republicans in a handful of races.

Trump said Republican Congress without Paul Ryan as Speaker would focus more on stopping illegal immigration.

There are serious legal issues that paul ryan is guilty of, thats why he will never run again, he should be swatted into prison where he belongs. While EO is not can you get a deadbead congress to do their job? You cant. But democrats will challenge the EO and the SC will rule on it {as they did the travel ban}, the EO will become permanent as it should.

Ryan is correct, and is at least showing a bit of consistency and integrity.

If it wasn't ok to legislate by executive order for Obama, then neither is it for Trump, and we should follow the Constituion.

Yet again, and example of Trump being unable to be a uniter, and an effective leader.

Here is what Trump tweeted:

“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about!”

Apparently, Ryan knows a bit more about the Constitution than Trump does.

How can Trump POSSIBLY claim Ryan knows nothing about this? Yet another example of Trumps dividing rather than uniting. Ryan is acting like a leader, and Trump like a spoiled child who had his favorite toy taken away.

Yep, Trump now knows more about the law than Ryan. Just like he knows more about war and national security than Mattis. Or just like he knows more about......the list goes on. This guy is too funny. Those of you who believe in the crud coming out of his mouth are just downright scary.

Trump isnt a divider, he's doing exactly as he promised, the job WE gave him, and doing a damn fine job of it. 1:11pm must ignore the real communist/socialist...they, like 1:11pm want the Country to fail, they want our borders destroyed so illegals can vote them into power. Join the Red Wave, Vote Republican
